1. Go to Dashboard => Members => Attributes
2. Under "Add attribute" select "Text" and click "Add"
3. For the first name add these:
- Handle (for technical reasons): first_name
- Name (this will show up to your users): First name
- Check both boxes under "Searchable"
- Check "Displayed in Public profile" (I guess you want this)
- Check "Editable in Profile."
- Check "Show on Registration Form."
4. Click "Add"

Then repeat this for the last name and there you go.

Is there some reason the word "Options" has to pop up just because I've added a new text field to the registration form this way? Why is this word "Options" automatically inserted?

It assumes that all the attributes you show on the form are "options".

To change that, you'd need to override the single page view layer of that page.

There's some info on how to do that:

Yeah, I was working on that page for hours yesterday. There's no word 'Options' anywhere on the entire page, so where the word comes from I was unable to determine. It was pretty frustrating. It's quite imposing to force anything that can not be easily accessed and removed. I eventually got rid of it in a strange way via CSS by "display:none" on the containing element itself, which had no class or ID to grab, even. But, it was an unusual enough sort of element that I could just grab it with "element {display:none}" ...not sure if that worked in all browsers yet. Hope so.

There is the word "Options" on that page (L82):

Thank you. That is annoying. I'm using SublimeText, I thought that was a pretty non-buggy editor. Obviously not.

Hi All,

a quick question on this, is there a way to submit the details of a registration form then take the registrant to a custom page?

So the product example would be details of the registrant sent and then they are taken to a payment window.

Many thanks in advance.
